6 Fairy Makeup Ideas With Colored Contacts: Woodland & Dark Fairy Costumes

Fairy makeup can refer to so many different styles including fairycore makeup or dark fairy SFX looks. If you love the fairy aesthetic then why not bring it to your next costume? Our amazing affiliates have designed an amazing array of fairy body paints for inspiration. 

How do you do fairy makeup?

If you are aiming to create a classic fairy makeup look then you will need:

  • A soft, light eyeshadow color
  • Cute pink highlights
  • Glitter to add shimmer to your makeup
  • A subtle gloss for your lips
  • A bold eyeliner wing 
  • Soft feathered eyebrows

Simple fairy makeup tends to either focus the color around the nose and cheeks or above the eyes. Choose your design and add gorgeous pastel colors with some glitter to finish. If you want to give your face the aura of an ethereal being then make sure to complete your makeup with some prosthetic elf ears and a pair of natural or costume colored contact lenses.

@makeupmadhouse has focussed on a woodland fairy makeup theme with this gorgeous body paint artwork. This sweet forest makeup scene is paired with a soft pink cheek highlight and bold eyeliner. Carrie has chosen the White Blind Colored Contacts Lenses to complete her mystical woodland creature but if you want to have full visibility, the White Halloween Lenses would have an equally stunning effect.


@makeupmadhouse has also been experimenting with dark fairy makeup. Check out this beautiful Luna Moth Moon Fairy makeup idea. This original makeup concept features a hand-painted moth to the chest surrounded by the moon phases. To channel the twilight colors, Carrie has opted for the Yellow Avatar Lenses to complete this fairy.


@courtneyleighhollins was inspired to create Halloween fairy makeup ideas to give you inspiration for last-minute costumes. This spooky Dark fairy costume is perfect for switching up your Halloween look from the usual zombies and vampires. Painting your prosthetic elf ears like @courtneyleighhollins is the perfect way to ensure they blend in seamlessly. We love the scar design over the eye paired with a single White Blind Contact Lens. In the other eye, Courtney is wearing a vibrant Blue Elf Contact Lens. Wearing a blind effect lens in one eye is great for parties as you can enjoy the style of the blind lens without completely limiting your vision.

@sfx_by_bry was inspired by Courtney’s purple fairy makeup and re-created the look using White Mesh Lenses and White Cat’s Eye Lenses. Adding a lens with a vertical pupil is a fun way to enhance any fantasy design and give it a mythical dragon vibe.

For her second evil fairy makeup, @sfx_by_bry has opted for an eerie blue color theme. This cold-toned color is a cool way to add a fallen angel twist to this spirit. For this fairy makeup, @sfx_by_bry is wearing an Aqua Blue Ice Walker Lens and Black Mesh Lens.

Our natural colored contact lenses are also an ideal match to your fairy costume, especially if you are trying out a fairycore aesthetic. In this cool cosplay, @avada___kedavra pairs a blue wig, headpiece, and Gothic black dress with our Mystic Turquoise Colored Contact Lenses.


Our favorite thing about fairy makeup ideas is that you can choose any theme you want to create a magical SFX makeup look. From a forest fairy costume to a dark fairy look, there are so many options and styles to try out. If you are sharing your fairy costume featuring Colored Contacts on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, or Twitter then don’t forget to tag us! We are obsessed with the fairy makeup trend and hope it is one that is here to stay!
